folate is needed in the division of cells (pregnancy) as it prevents aneamia. it also helps in the production of red cells which helps prevent cancer. stuffed if i know why they'd ban it.

This is a little strange, especially with all of the lovely artificial flavours and colours made from chemicals a lot of American processed foods have in them
